“Ignore the whiners”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

If you want a resort experience, this is not it. If you appreciate a hot shower (it does get hot if you run it long enough) and a comfortable bed after a long hike, the Havasupai Lodge offers that. A bit run-down, certainly, but our room was clean, secure, spacious, and extremely quiet. Good place to rest up! The staff was perfectly courteous and helpful, if not effusively friendly. True, if this lodge was on a commercial strip in Flagstaff it would be overpriced, but did I mention it's at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, 8 miles from a road? I think they do really well, considering the challenges of their location.

I was pleasantly surprised to see such a well established lodge in the middle of canyons. The place has much more to offer than you would need in a good Havasu falls trip. Hot shower, air conditioned rooms, plenty of electric plugs.. what more could I had asked for! There's a microwave oven in the office, which we used to heat up some food we were carrying with us.

The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, felt safe and had air conditioning. Unfortunately we did deal with cold showers. Staff was definitely not friendly and they did not even offer coffee or tea. You are basically paying for a room only!!!! The village people definitely weren't on the friendly side although there were a few that were cordial. The café has a lot to be desired. Food was so so. Not what we expected for a café. No alcohol is allowed in the village. The falls were phenomenal!!! The hike was great. Well worth it for us!!!

I would recommend this lodge if you are planning to hike the 8 miles into the Havasupai. Your room consists of 2 beds, hot shower, clean towels, miniature soaps and shampoos, table, and sofa seat. If you don't want to "rough it" then you can stay here for the basics. The front desk will loan you a towel to take to the falls. You can hike in with less stuff if you stay here. Every ounce counts. Horses graze in the courtyard of the lodge and dogs are around frequently but friendly and used to folks coming and going. Picnic tables and a grill are for your use in the courtyard. Most anything you need can be purchased at the store for a hefty price given the fact of how everything is brought down. (I did not see camp fuel at the store.) The lodge is a great place to stay. Keep in mind that you are about 1 mile from the Navajo falls, a couple miles from the Havasu waterfalls and 3 miles from Mooney falls.

After a strenuous 8 mile hike even basic comfort would be heaven. If you are looking for a luxury accommodation, then this is definitely not for you. They stick on to their check in times so earlier you arrive, more you wait. We had an hour wait! The lodge has all basic amenities ~ clean beds, clean sheets and towel, clean bathrooms, AC and laundry. You can ask for extra towels for falls at the lobby. There are lot os stray dogs but doesn't really bother you.. they aren't aggressive as they seem. We have been to havasu twice and we did camping once n now we took the lodge. Personally, I prefer the camping only coz you can avoid the extra 2 mile hike to falls everyday! people are friendly. There are quite lot of kids who keeps playing around with you in the lodge. There is a store in town opened until 7pm, you can purchase water and food. There is also a cafeteria, a bit expensive. You have picnic tables in the lawn where you can cook and have your meals. Small pomegranate trees and a view of the majestic canyon walls. I really couldn't complain much about the lodge after a long day. Expecting a luxury stay and complaining about no tv and internet is pointless. Reserve your rooms prior to your trip.

Tip: Start you hike as early as possible.Take lots of water.

My boyfriend and I got caught in a flash flood going down the canyon. We had planned to camp but they had to close the campground. Luckily a nice group we met going down had a cancellation and we were able to get one of their rooms in the lodge. To have a hot shower, clean room, AC, potable water, and friendly companions made what could have been a bad night good.

The lodge has picnic tables where you can eat outside and cook your own food. The food from the cafe in the village was okay. It was real basic stuff like french fries, burgers, and grilled cheese. Everyone swears by the fry bread but they were out when I went in. The cafe was closed Sat & Sun when I was there. The front desk at the lodge has a menu and one of the tribe members will take your dinner order and bring food right to your room! I'd plan to cook your own food if possible though. I also used iodine in the water (you never know!).

I would still prefer camping by the waterfalls but if camping is not an option for you than staying at Havasupai Lodge is certainly the perfect opportunity to explore paradise. Phantom Ranch in the National Park requires reservations a year in advance! I think you'd have better luck w/the Havasupai. Just keep calling. Also they offer helicopter service in/out of the canyon!


The rooms about $159 per night. $45 one time fee to get into the reservation. Helicopter $85 each way per person w/1 bag. About $8 for a hamburger.

I gave 4/5 stars. I agree with some of the other negative reviews on here but we need to remember this is a "hotel" in the middle of the grand canyon.

We chose to stay here after the 8 mile hike into the canyon. On arrival, the entrance to the lodge had one of the gates missing, the waterfall was empty and filled with rubbish and all the flower beds were again empty. The welcome from reception staff was just about acceptable. Our rooms were an the ground floor and the doors were well bashed with flimsy locks. Inside, the bedding on 2 double beds was clean, as were the towels. The room was extremely basic, although we hadn't expected any more. AC worked, until the power went off in the morning and we had cold showers. No coffee machine, so no hot drinks all day.
We had planned to eat in the cafe, but there was a notice up saying that it had been closed down, due to a fire. As we hadn't taken any food, we resorted to visiting the shop. Supplies were limited, so we ended up with Doritos and a can of cold chilli. We had planned to eat outside, but as I started bringing the food out, 4 dogs appeared and one jumped on the table. So we ended up sitting in with our food all evening. The next morning the shop did have coffee to take away.
It is such a beautiful spot, and with a bit of TLC, the lodge could be good. I do wonder where the money goes for the accommodation, as it is not used for renovation.
The walk down was great, and we had 3 children with us age 10 to 13. It took about 4 and a half hours at a steady pace.The waterfalls are fairly spectacular, although 2 miles downhill, so 2 miles uphill on the way back, when your legs are weary.
The helicopter ride out was amazing, if not a little disorganized. We were there at 8am(to the left of the cafe). A list was then provided and you put your names down. Until you pay the man, you cannot go. He then calls out the names, whilst the helicopter is there, so no-one can hear for the noise. Anyway we did all get out, although in 2 trips.
